F1 links: Renault announcement due soon

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

Are the FIA going to put out details of the Renault investigation tomorrow so it gets buried in the Saturday papers? Let’s find out…

Mosley Call On Renault Could Come Friday

"The FIA could announce as early as Friday whether Renault is to be called before the World Motor Sport Council to answer allegations surrounding the 2008 Singapore GP."

Lotus confirms Bahar

"Dany Bahar has been appointed as the new CEO of Group Lotus effective October 1. Bahar was previously Senior Vice President, Commercial & Brand for Ferrari SpA where he was responsible for worldwide road car sales and after sales business, overall road car and F1 marketing activities, licensing, and merchandising business."

Malaysians pushing for Lotus F1 entry

"Autosport understands that the Malaysian government is keen to continue the promotion of its oil company Petronas in F1, but also start delivering a higher profile for the Lotus company name – which is owned by Malaysia's national car maker Proton."

Renault crisis deepens after FIA widens investigation

"A source within the FIA said: 'There were interviews going on all weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, and other issues above and beyond Singapore are also to be looked at.' Technical chief Pat Symonds and Alonso were among senior Renault figures interviewed more than once by FIA representatives in Belgium."

Hülkenberg in contention at Williams

Sam Michael: "Nico is someone that is on our list for a drive next year. But there are lots of drivers knocking on our door."

Ted Kravitz – the Belgian GP from the pit lane

"As a matter of interest, in the McLaren post-race press release, every quote – with the exception of Hamilton's – praises Kimi for his win. Given that most McLaren people would rather undergo root canal surgery than publicly praise Ferrari, one can't help thinking there's a bit of 'preparing the ground' going on here."

Blame the rules for "race-fixing"

"The FIA will never be happy until all the cars are the same, the teams marching to the same step, and drivers are racing on the same line on the circuit. We are already moving closer and closer to that world with a spec Formula 2 and GP2 right at the doorstep. I am tired of saying this, but I believe it would be better for Formula 1 to produce a smaller rulebook."
